3:00am
touching welcome home from his beloved dog. callie goes nuts seeing her owner for the first time in over a year. next the bad. a boulder the size of a car comes crashing down ton a colorado highway. luckily no cars were hit, but it took several hours for workers to break it apart and clean up. finally the udo man almost carjacked at gunpoint but the would-be thieves ran away because they couldn't figure out how to drive his corvette stick shift. >> good thing for him. well, it is brew on this question of the day. a study claims more americans with college degrees are overqualified for their jobs. >> here's what you had to say. glenn from south dakota say it is the new norm. my wife has a masters of managers degree and her last job was entry level clerk. >> ray from texas says i don't think because you have a degree you're necessarily overqualified for a lesser job. i've seen a lot of college graduates that aren't really prepared for the
3:01am
real world. >> sherri says with the loss of skilled jobs, i'd say very much so. and at less money. i made two-thirds more in 2000. thanks to everyone who responded. and "fox & friends" starts right now. >> have a great day. goodbye. >> a happy good morning to you. it's tuesday, january 29, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us today. the president asked for bipartisanship, and guess what? he finally got it. but now will he take it? his reaction to the senate's new plan to try and fix a broken immigration system. >>steve: meanwhile, you want welfare benefits? you better talk to your kids. a controversial plan to tie handouts, government money, to your child's grades at school. we'll tell you about that shortly. >>brian: remember these folks? it turns out the struggling occupy wall streeters were not struggling. they were rich, they were white, they were educated, and they had jobs.
3:02am
did i mention political operatives? you're going to hear all about it right here -- thanks for the commentary, steve. "fox & friends" starts just about now. disciple hello. i'm about to reenter the atmosphere. >>gretchen: we're not going to talk about the monkey again. >>brian: the iranian monkey is back home? >>gretchen: no. the monkey, as we discussed in the after-the-show show, is probably not on this planet or anywhere alive in space either. >>steve: the story is the iranians came out and said the rocket went up, came down and monkey was fine. others are saying there was no rocket. the iranians -- you've got to trust the iranians -- >>gretchen: let me break out my college education for a minute. >>steve: the iranians say they shot the monkey up yesterday, successfully tested and came down. he's okay. >>brian: when are they going to make the monkey
3:03am
available to the press? >>steve: exactly. steve kroft is ready to interview him. >>gretchen: let's get to your headlines. a surge is underway off the coast of italy for a u.s. fighter pilot. it is believed his f-16 went down in the adriatic sea. the pilot was on a training mission when he lost contact with headquarters. he sent an alarm before disappearing. the visibility was already poor because it was night. the obama raising a white flag on closing guantanamo bay with little fanfare. the state department reassigned the diplomat charged with overseeing the prison shutdown. in 2009 president obama vowed to close gitmo and transfer prisoners to the united states. former new york city mayor ed koch back in the hospital, having a hard time breathing and talking because fluid built up around his lungs. koch was released saturday after being treated for a
3:04am
week. repeated hospitalizations are common for people battling fluid problems. koch will miss tonight's premier of a documentary, unfortunately, about his life. the italian lawyer put in the slammer for steufg the steak house is off the meat hook. gradzio said chow to his debt paying a $208 tap in court. he was the guy who said he forgot his wallet at home in the hotel and couldn't pay his bill at smith and wo- llensky. sounds like he might not ge in too much trouble. he had the cash to pay, he just didn't have it there. >>brian: twa two weeks ago when mark rubio came to this couch and said i got this plan for immigration
3:05am
reform. and dick durbin said we've come together with a gang of eight with a plan for immigration reform and unveiled it yesterday. it seems there is a bipartisan push to get something done this year. >>steve: four republicans and four democrats are behind this. what's interesting is notice on the top shelf, you've got dick durbin. back in 2007 when george w. bush had his proposal to reform immigration with the guest worker program, it was dick durbin and then-senator barack obama who gutted the guest worker provision out of that immigration reform and effectively killed it off. so it's great that now durbin is on board along with a number of republicans. the big question is, though, later today we're going to hear from the president. is the president really serious about immigration reform? after all, marco rubio has been out there, but has the white house reached out to him so far? absolutely not. >>gretchen: here's the plan they're talking about, this gang of eight.
3:06am
register and pass a background check. you would be required to do that if you're illegal. pay a fine and back taxes. earn probationary legal status. learn english. continue to pay taxes. show work history and then get a green card and then apply for citizenship. effectively you would go to the back of the line. so this is a bipartisan effort. remember, some of these commissions have come together in the past, in the last four years, specifically about the debt and the president hasn't necessarily taken on the plan that they have come up with. so this will be really important to see if it actually works. >>brian: a really important provision, skills valued. we've got engineers out there, computer technology experts, people when they have skills -- for example, if they train at american universities, they would get a priority. this is what microsoft and you always heard apple saying. we need more engineers in this country. why are we training them and letting them go back home? let's give them u.s. status or a green card. marco rubio talks about a
3:07am
plan. >> before we can move towards a path for green card because citizenship comes after that, before we move towards a path for green cards there has to be an enforcement mechanism in place. it is workplace enforcement and tracking the exit and entry of visitor visas. 40% of undocumented workers in this count enter legally and overstay their visas. we don't track when people leave so we don't know who they are or where they are. all these things must happen before -- before -- there is a path to a green card. i think that is a critical component to anything we do here. >>steve: absolutely. a lot of people go it sounds like amnesty. the editorial pages of the "wall street journal" today argue it is not amnesty. if you follow all the provisions in what marco rubio is talking about, it could take somebody 15 years to become an american citizen. >>gretchen: the important point is this bipartisan group says the most important aspect of this, before you start anything,
3:08am
is to enforce the border, that that has to happen or these other things will not trigger into effect. here's going to be the interesting thing when the president flies to las vegas today to unveil his plan. keep in mind, it will not be a bill. it will just be what he believes should happen with immigration. he does not want to link legal status to border security. so that could be a huge sticking point here with whether or not he agrees with this bipartisan commission. >>brian: two conservative republicans out of texas are seemingly against it. ted cruz, powerful guy out of s-bgs, and lamar smith says i can't support it as i see it right now. the president is going to praise the bipartisan commission and then he's going do his own thing which is considered to be, the term is more liberal. >>steve: here's the thing. the president can have a more liberal agenda, but then you've got the senate version and also in the house they're working on a more conservative version. by the time it all goes
3:09am
around the table, let's see what happens. meanwhile, the president will be flying out to las vegas in air force one. did you realize it costs the federal government $182,000 per flight hour to fly that thing? so nine hours worth of flying time, it's going to cost the federal government $1.6 million for what is effectively just a photo op. >>gretchen: then you have bobby jindal, governor of louisiana, who has been very local in the past, of course a republican. after the election he said the party needs to take a closer look inside to determine specifically how to get more minorities in line. remember, 70% of the hispanic vote went to president obama back in november. now as one of the governors, he's talking about the cost of medicare. and he would like the president to get together with the governors, since he has talked about outreach, to talk about how to curtail the cost. here's part of the op-ed he wrote. a number of republican
3:10am
governors asked to meet with president obama but the white house ignored requests. the president claims he wants to work across party lines to help the american people so perhaps he could start with republican governors who want to solve the nation's health care proms. >>brian: medicaid, under obama care is going to be expanded. he says my idea is to fix medicare and target several areas. right now they say they're using a 1960's model which is one-size-fits all, which means no one can afford to pay for it. >>steve: rather than a great big new expensive program, why not fix the ones we've got? so he wants to meet with the president along with the other governors. meanwhile let's go to tennessee and tell you about a state senator by the name of stacy campfield. he doesn't have children but he has an idea.
3:11am
if you receive welfare benefits -- currently if your kids don't show up for school they cut you at 20%. but if your kids don't get good grades -- in other words don't pass -- they would cut your welfare benefits 30%. there are a lot of critics who say how can you punish a family if they don't have food on the table? >>gretchen: i think this is about parent involvement. i think that the first thing that's important to try and improve grades is to get parents involved. maybe there would be some way to encourage more parental involvement at the school level, especially with families who are receiving welfare, and maybe that would be a way of looking at this as opposed to punishing the child. >>brian: right now if no one is showing up for back to school night and your kid is stprug -- struggling, maybe you can get through with the parent. they'll say i'll get little cindy focused on grades
3:12am
because it is costing us money and eventually cost us lights. >>gretchen: or maybe they will show up at school. one of the reasons kids are not doing well in the classroom is because they're not coming to school. a lot of that has to do with parents or guardians trying to make the effort to get them there on a daily basis. >>steve: they're already cutting their welfare benefits 20% if the kids don't show up for school. another 10% or more punitive action, do you think it is a good idea to try to get more parents involved? then again there are a lot of parents who think their kids are going to school, and kids in high school sometimes are hard to handle. >>brian: remember me in canned tkpwar ten. i -- kindergarten because i couldn't recognize my name, i kept faking illness. if my parents had been cracked down, they would have found out the real reason. >>steve: what year was
3:13am
that? >>brian: kindergarten. >>gretchen: i never heard this story in seven years. it's a new one. as i said, when is the book coming out? >>brian: the unauthorized version. >>gretchen: on tpobgz -- on "fox & friends," a shocking story about these new wall street protesters. it turns out they are actually closer to the 1% than they would like to than they would like to admit. one. two. three. my credit card rewards are easy to remember with the bankamericard cash rewards credit card.
3:14am
earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. [ both ] 2% back on groceries. [ all ] 3% on gas. no hoops to jump through. i earn more cash back on the things i buy the most. [ woman ] it's as easy as... one! -two. -[ all ] three! [ male announcer ] the bankamericard cash rewards credit card. apply online or at a bank of america near you. i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events
3:15am
including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, haveuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. i hate getting up in the morning. i love bread. i love cheese. did i say i love chocolate? i'm human! and the new weight watchers 360 program lets me be. the reason i'm still in this body feelin' so good isn't cause i never go out and enjoy the extra large, extra cheese world we live in. it's because i do. and you can too. because when a weight loss program is built for human nature you can expect amazing.

3:17am
>>steve: remember media matters, the group using taxpayer money to try to take down fox news? the leftie group is also using your money to try to push gun control. now it turns out the man behind the organization, david brock, doesn't practice what he preaches. joining us now the founder of the daily caller, tucker carlson. tell us about david brock's onetime assistant and what he was packing. >> his assistant was carrying a 9 millimeter handgun, a glock with a staggered 17-round magazine in order to protect david brock. he also purchased a shotgun. it looks like these two guns were purchased in cash probably with money from media matters. we also ascertained that brock's assistant carried this firearm in the district of columbia, both the magazine and the gun itself were illegal -- both felonies, by the way -- and probably to a meet of something called democracy alliance, a west-wing
3:18am
coalition group in california, where it also would have been illegal, in the company of luminaries like senator die kwraeupb feinstein -- dianne feinstein, now pushing gun control, and a panoply of left-wing pro-gun control leaders were there with david brock's armed bodyguard illegally armed. >>steve: in d.c. it is almost impossible to get a concealed permit. obviously the guy didn't have it. how many felonies are we er this guy, what kind of time are we looking at? >> a felly suggests over a -- a felony suggests over a year in prison. it is illegal to have any high-capacity magazine in the district even if it doesn't have rounds in it. it is illegal to carry an unregistered firearm. it is basically impossible to get one registered in the district. we have some of the
3:19am
strictest gun control in the country. keep in mind david brock has a history of mental illness, this at a time when a lot of attention is being paid to people with mental illness with weapons. the irony here is almost overwhelming. here is a group paid by soros and others to push gun control on the country, and here they are using an illegal unregistered firearm. >>steve: it is hypocrisy indeed. in your piece in the daily call, you also talk about how there have been a number of donors who have given money specifically to media matters to push gun control. when this comes out, it is embarrassing. what about the legal exposure to mr. brock? he's got to be in trouble too; right? >> you would think. keep in mind, for example, the gun hearings on capitol hill, in a number of them, congressmen have wanted to show weapons. like here's one of the guns we want to ban. it's almost impossible to get those guns on to capitol hill for the
3:20am
purposes of a congressional hearing. that is how strict gun control is in the district. if you are driving through the district of columbia, which of course abuts maryland and virginia, pulled over for speeding or running a red light, driving through the city, straight to jail. this has happened quite a bit. it is something taken very seriously. of course it hasn't affected our crime rate. >>steve: an investigation? criminal investigation? police investigation into this yet? >> we couldn't get a straight answer from the d.c. police on that question. though it is our understanding that, yes, they are taking a look at this. it is beyond dispute that this happened. we have e-mails from within media matters saying, yes, this gun was their responsibility. they were in charge of this gun and they knew tpwas illegal. so -- and they knew it was illegal. so i would expect investigation. >>steve: thanks, tucker. should teachers at a christian school have to prove they go to church? or is that a violation of
3:21am
their rights? we're going to report and you decide. then, they're down right dirty. dr. samadi is on the case about the dirtiest places in the office? the keyboard? the keyboard? the coffee machine? what do we do when something that's hard to paint, the keyboard? the coffee machine? really wants to be painted? we break out new behr ultra with stain-blocker from the home depot... ...the best selling paint and primer in one that now eliminates stains. so it paints over stained surfaces, scuffed surfaces, just about any surface. what do you say we go where no paint has gone before, and end up some place beautiful. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. behr ultra. now with advanced stain blocking, only at the home depot, and only $31.98 a gallon. hi, i just switched jobs, and i want to roll over my old 401(k) into a fidelity a.

>> parents listen to this. according to a new report, it now costs $351,000 to raise a child for 18 years. and double that again waiting for the next 18 years for that lazy kid to move o.u. -- out of the basement. >>steve: the new normal. speaking of new, one of the new things on the political spectrum has been about fairness in the last year or two. where does that spring up from? the occupy wall street movement. now the city university of new york has one of their, one of their schools did a
3:34am
survey, about 750 of the people who took part in that. and as it turns out, those people were not really the 99%. a lot of them were much closer to the top 1%. >>gretchen: interesting when you break down the facts. 92 apparently were college educated. that's way higher than the average or the norm in america. 13% -- only 13% -- were unkphroeud. so -- were unemployed. you have to wonder if they were college educated, did they have jobs? apparently they weren't going to them when they were down there. maybe they were coming to wall street when they weren't actually working. >>steve: two thirds of them were employed professionally and 28% made over $50,000 a year. one other thing, according to the study, occupy wall street was not a spontaneous eruption but rather an action carefully planned by committed activists. >>brian: most of them probably went to their apartments to sleep at night and went back to the
3:35am
park to camp. 27 minutes before the top of the hour. >>steve: how about headlines on this tuesday? janet hassan and karen mcbride published the names of legal gun owners. now the journal news admitting, oops, we made some mistakes. turns out only about 4,000 of nearly 17,000 households in one county were accurate. that's terrible. >>brian: a brand-new investigation revealing a pro-obama company is building a wind power project in the same area where a coal plant closed. they're building two major wind energy projects in the same area where plans for a coal plant were scrapped. >> duke energy, a company you remember, that lent $10 million to the democratic party for its convention in charlotte -- in other words, a company with close
3:36am
ties to the obama administration. >> chase powers said it was forced to abandon plans for the coal plant because of e.p.a.'s tough anti-coal regulations. the plant would have created 3,900 jobs. >>gretchen: a christian school is suing two teachers who refused to give proof of their faith. the school requires all teachers to fill out a questionnaire about where they go to church and about their faith. two teachers refused to fill it out and weren't rehired. they threatened to sue, but the school is going to sue them saying the first amendment protects their right to hire teachers w share their belief. >>steve: a group of tphaoeudists are worried -- a group of nudists are worried they won't have anywhere to take it off this summeradly. a number of beaches in long island, brian, were heavily damaged by super storm sandy including a clothing optional beach. when the nudist group found out it was closed until
3:37am
further notice, they spread the word to members, calling for action. >>brian: where do they keep their phones? >>gretchen: where are you going to go? >>steve: i have no idea. i might be stuck wearing clothes this summer. it's going to be awful. we're going to follow the nudist story. >>brian: we're going to follow the nudist story. now i'll do sports. the ravens have landed, ray lewis and the team arriving in new orleans this sunday. they're all business, not waving to fans or posing for pictures. they -- tea party is -- tim tebow is reported to be working out with british olympians and a british olympic track coach at a community college tkph arizona. tebow has kept quiet about his disappointing season with the jets who barely played. remember this record-breaking surf?
3:38am
you will now. a world record set for riding the 78-foot beast in portugal last year. this picture taken yesterday has some wondering if he broke his own record. it is at the same beach and looks to be at least 100 feet tall. as for falling 100 feet in the process, he's okay. he thanks his twitter followers saying it was an awesome day. we'll be at the super bowl shortly, 48 hours. meanwhile, a messy and slick commute for drivers in kennebunkport, maine, after that area got hit with about three inches of snow yesterday but warmer temperatures are causing problems in the plains states. let's check on the weather with maria molina. >>maria: good morning. good to see you guys. we're talking about very mild temperatures across portions of the plains and the southeast. while it seems like good news -- temperatures in the 70's early this morning in texas. 68 right now in kansas city and 57 degrees in chicago. it is january.
3:39am

>>steve: more headlines for you on this tuesday morning. the pretrial hearing continues today for khalid sheikh mohammed, the self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind. he and another defendant refused to respond to questions from the judge yesterday causing another delay. she's familiar with the legal system. now caylee anthony is considering becoming a paralegal according to her lawyer who says she is very organized, intelligent and believes in the justice system. anthony has been unemployed for over four years and just filed for bankruptcy, so she needs something to make money with. mr. kilmeade, to you and the judge. >>brian: president obama violated the constitution, that according to the u.s. court of appeals. it found his recess appointments to the
3:45am
national labor relations board exceeded his authority. and the white house response at this point? they have ignored it. can they do that? let's ask judge anthony napolitano. judge, how can you ignore a ruling? >> this ruling changes what presidents of both parties have liberally done in the past 75 years. they present a nominee to the senate. the senate refuses to consider the person, or the president decides he doesn't have enough votes in the senate to confirm the nomination. so they wait until the senate is in recess. then when the senate is in recess, they put the person in office because there is a clause in the constitution that says when the senate is in recess the president may put a person in office that would otherwise require senate confirmation until the end of the next session of congress. president obama did that so liberally, so aggressively, particularly with some members of the national labor relations board, that some businesses offended by
3:46am
what the energy will -- what the nlrb did that these folks right below the supreme court agreed the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous
3:47am
is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>brian: if the corporations start ignoring the white house's rules. >> very serious problem and great question when the government breaks its own laws. when the government breaks its own laws, the country becomes lawless and people think they can break the laws. when the government decides what to obey and disobey -- >>brian: in your opinion, what breaks this deadlock? >> if the supreme court affirms what the appeals court did that will end it with finality and there is nothing the white house can do about it. but in the interim, every time some official who wasn't confirmed by the senate does something and someone is offended by it,
3:48am
they're going to have to sue that official to get what the official did invalidated by the courts. it is a long and torturous process unless the white house follows what this court told them to. >>brian: it is a huge setback for the white house unless they ignores it. how can it be a setback if no one pays attention to? >> that is a great accumulation of mixed metaphors. >> shepherd smith, you're served, pal. go ahead. >> if the president wants to ignore the laws and the congress lets him and courts don't do anything about it, he'll get away with it. this president is a champion of doing that and getting away with it. >>brian: judge napolitano also champion of the law. we get to see you on television twice a week and that's great. thanks for coming by. meanwhile, 13 minutes before the top of the hour. hypocrisy alert. >> in the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?

i think that means through. it's at the royal palm yacht club. it's in fort myers, florida. the event is free but you need to register by e-mailing rebuilding your dreams at foxnews.com. >>gretchen: he doesn't want to pay his taxes so he's not going to stick around for that segment. it is that dreaded time of year. it is on my list of things to do. are you ready to file? we want to make sure you're not missing out on any deductions or credit that you're eligible for. >>steve: personal finance exert, vera, is here. that's right. old. relax, vera. she's got the five most valuable money saving deductions that are often overlooked. let's start with the earned-income tax credit. who is that good for and what can you say? >> low to middle-income
3:54am
earners. this was extended as part of the fiscal cliff deal. one in five taxpayers miss it. it's worth a lot depending on how much income, your marital status. the average person who claims it, it is worth an average of over $2,000 and could be worth $6,000 if you've got three more qualifying children. this is a big credit. if you want to find out if you qualify, the i.r.s. has assistance. >>gretchen: if you forget, the i.r.s. doesn't call and say let's help you out. >> job-hunting costs, i found this one interesting because even if you don't secure a job, when you're hunting, you can still write off -- there's always ifs, ands, buts or maybe. but if you looked for a job in the same line of work in 2012 and write off your return. that's one thing. even if you didn't land a job, your job search was unsuccessful, you can still
3:55am
take that. >>steve: everybody knows charitable deductions are deductible. but out of pocket, what you're talking about is let's say you're going to make some meat loaf for a homeless shelter, you're going to take them down? >> that is exactly right. people tend to remember the big cash donations but tend to forget to take deductions for out of pocket contributions like the ingredients for meat loaf they made for their favorite charity. also miles to and from your charitable endeavors. 14 cents a mile. parking tolls, all that stuff is deductible. >>gretchen: let's talk about energy-saving home improvements. >> a lot of people think these will disappear because remember when people installed energy-efficient doors to take advantage of the break. those are gone but some of the more valuable ones are still around. solar systems, geothermal heating pumps, big-ticket items like that. the credit is 30%. that's a decent break. that too has been extended.
3:56am
that's around for a few more years. >>steve: for awhile new storm windows, does that still qualify? >> we've lost a lot of those breaks but there's still some of the more valuable ones. if you're an energy-efficient enthusiast. >>gretchen: what about washers and dryers? you want to check out to see specifically what is deductible and with -- and what isn't. >>gretchen: american opportunity credit, what's that? >> a decent break for your undergrads, $2,500 for an eligible college student. there are income requirements, you've got to meet those. this is a break that undergrads tend to overlook even though it is a decent one. that has been extended as part of the fiscal cliff deal. >>steve: stuff people didn't know about. our old buddy vera gibbons. great report. >>gretchen: coming up, he survived the battle of mogadishu and says he has two things in common with

>>gretchen: president obama is going to las vegas to present his own plan for immigration reform. many undocumented workers are hopeful a plan could actually happen. >> i want to hug my mother, and of course i want to give something to my kids, like they can go to school. >> they will be granted legal status but then they get behind everyone else who waited legally for green card status. >>gretchen: as you can see, it is an emotional issue for many people. the president's plan is expected to be more liberal than this bipartisan plan, like letting residences not tied to border security. it is believed an f-16 went down in the adr i atic sea. the president was on a
4:03am
mission with three other jets when he lost contact with headquarters. he sent an alarm before disappearing. it was nighttime and also sleet in the area at the time. the obama administration raising the white flag on closing guantanamo bay with little fanfare. they reassigned the diplomat in charge of overseeing the shut down and there appears to be no plan to replace him. in 2009 president obama vowed to close gitmo and transfer prisoners to the united states but that plan never took off. the treasury department was showing them the money. a scathing new report from the inspector general finds it ignored its own rules and okayed huge raises for bailed-out c.e.o.'s. according to the report, raises for 18 firms were approved. they received $250 billion total in taxpayer bailout money. gagan says the report is inaccurate.
4:04am
and those are your headlines this morning. >>brian: they talked for 30 minutes on "60 minutes." i'm talking about secretary of state hillary clinton who was once first lady hillary clinton. they had a lot to talk about. for the first time in four-plus years, president obama and hillary clinton gave a joint interview. it was their idea. they sat down with steve kroft. steve kroft thinks he knows why he was chosen. >>steve: steve kroft sat down with pierce morgan. he said he was absolutely flabbergasted when he discovered the white house wanted him to be the interviewer. he was asked why does obama keep sitting in the chair opposite you? he said we're fair, we do great editing and we're not going to play gotcha, we're not going to go out of our way to make him look stupid, and he knows that. >>gretchen: brit hume on special report last night put his thoughts into
4:05am
perspective. >> you didn't hear it on "60 minutes" but president obama is unhappy with the press. in a second weekend interview with the new republic he grumbled about fox news and rush limbaugh. president obama also complained a reporter generally treats the republicans and democrats as equivalent balancing the views of one side with the other. they fail to note one side -- his -- is trying to do what's right and -- quote -- "we haven't seen that kind of attitude on the other side." never mind of course that the president at that moment was being interviewed by one of his campaign donors and supporters who is also the owner of the new repub and never mind that he basically whistled up "60 minutes" on short notice to sit down with him and his secretary of state for an interview which could have been described as just how great is the relationship between you two? i must have missed the friendly interview "60 minutes" did with president
4:06am
bush and colin powell or condoleezza rice. you say mr. bush would never have offered one. that may be true. it is also true if he did he would have never gotten the same treatment this president has received from "60 minutes" and nearly all of the press. >>brian: he says he can relate to steve kroft in that he got called to do bush 41 and bush 43 at the same time. it's an honor to get that call but you don't know where the line is to ask a tough question and respect for the office. >>steve: 41 and 43, it was a novelty where father and son were sitting down because given the nature of it being a novelty, he didn't drill down and hammer them. it's interesting what brit was talking about, how the president doesn't like what we do here at fox news, which means he's not crazy about the first amendment, he doesn't like guns. that means he's not crazy about the second amendment. did you see that guy on cbs on sunday morning talking
4:07am
about how the constitution is way too old and it's probably irrelevant. a lot of weird stuff floating around these days. >>gretchen: gun control is a big issue people are talking about especially after the newtown, connecticut, shooting of those children and the teachers. there is a conservative guy who has been on our show before called jason matera. he approached mayor bloomberg in new york city asking about why he will not be allowed to defend himself but others can. look what happened during this confrontation. >> in the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team? >> we'll see. >> you'll get back to me? would you like a sip of my soda? mayor bloomberg, why can you defend yourself but not the majority of americans? look at the team of security you got, and you're an advocate for gun
4:08am
control? one, two, three, four, five -- five. there are probably more. >>steve: jason mattera never puts down his soda. >>gretchen: he's making fun of the mayor, also banned big sodas here because he thought the sugar was motte good and healthy -- sugar was not good and healthy. >>steve: his security team did exactly what they're supposed to do. they did his job. jason mattera did his job. >>brian: secret service is a lot different than local police. i think secret service has to carry a gun. like the n.r.a. should not be bringing up president obama's kids because they have guns. that's just the rules. >>steve: there are a lot of people who don't like guns but they use them nonetheless. in the op-ed pages of the "new york times" today there is a fellow by the name of justin cronyn who
4:09am
lives in texas, confessions of a liberal gun owner. >>gretchen: this gentleman says he's a new england liberal born and bred but now lives in texas, and he likes to have his guns. here's a portion of the op-ed. my wife is afraid of my guns, though she also says she's glad i have them. my 16-year-old daughter asked to take a pistol lesson. the instructor ran her through the basics demonstrating with a glock 9 millimeter how to hold it, load it, pull back the slide. you'll probably have trouble with that part, he said. a lot of women do. oh really, my daughter replied and with a cagey smile proceeded to rack her weapon with such authority you could have heard it in the parking lot. a proud papa moment, i confess it was. it's interesting because even people who are -- who you would think would not be in favor of some of these gun rights actually are, so it cuts both ways. >>steve: in that article, what does he say changed
4:10am
his mind about guns? katrina. he was trying to get out. he was part of the evacuation. he was in the car with his family, a couple thousand dollars and nothing but a heavy book to throw at anybody. katrina changed it all for him. after that he became a gun enthusiast. >>brian: would he told you about what they're doing in tennessee to crack down on welfare. they want to get kids to go to school and excel at school. to do that, they're hitting parents in their pocketbooks. for kids that aren't doing well, that are not excelling, they're going to cut between 20% and 30% of their welfare payments out to kids. it is a republican idea. some democrats are saying how could a kid that's hungry be focused on grades? but i think this is, as you pointed out last hour, gretchen, this is a desperate cry to get these kids to focus on their
4:11am
school and their parents to pay attention because this is an endless cycle. if these kids go out and don't have an education and still on welfare, how are they going to get off welfare? >>gretchen: exactly. maybe they should redirect it to the parents being involved in the school system a little bit more and maybe they should show up for some of the meetings or that could be a requirement. >>brian: they said it would force parents to take a more active role in the children's education. >>gretchen: i think it is punishing the children first for not getting good grades. i think the most important thing is to get the parents involved first and make sure if you can that your kids go to school. that is the first problem. a lot of kids don't go to school and then how could they possibly get good grades? >>steve: this tennessee republican senator says -- quote -- "nothing motivates people like money. we have done very little to hold parents accountable for their children's performance. it is unacceptable to have this generational cycle of poverty continue." he goes on and he admits he does not have children but he says, you know what? school is like a
4:12am
three-legged stool. you've got to have the schools, teachers and parents have got to work together. >>brian: glenn said as a 15-year-old teacher, i can tell you until some parents are -- quote -- "inconvenienced due to an issue with their child, they don't bother with whatever the problem is." i guess in support. that's one in support. keep on tweeting us with your views. >>steve: also the senator says we're not asking kids to rewrite the magna carta, a d-minus gets you through. the whole idea is to show up, do your best and your family keeps getting the welfare money. >>brian: 11 minutes after the hour. he survived the battle of mogadishu and says he has two things in common with the seals killed in benghazi. they were both left behind and both by a clinton. you've got to hear his story. >>gretchen: have you noticed your paycheck has shrunk? yes. we can thank the man inside the white house for that? huh? up next, we're going to help you put money back in help you put money back in your pocket. in america tay we're running out of a vital resource we need

>> secretary clinton really is responsible for not acting on benghazi. there's definitely a parallel here. it looks like she took a page from her husband's play book, which is not to give what's asked for. in mogadishu i can speak firsthand. we asked for armor, wasn't given the armor. i lost friends in that battle. the seals in benghazi, i think it is well documented now that there was a desperate cry for help going out. it wasn't heeded before and during the attack. i don't know if you can say secretary clinton is responsible for not acting. having worked with regional security officers, i know there is a flash message that can go out that will
4:18am
get you help right now. there were troops in theater that could have helped with that. the clintons for some reason, like this president, aren't taken to task for that. i watched appalgly on 60 minutes the other day and found we live in a dangerous and complicated world, but what the clintons or obamas never understand is my complicated world is different from theirs. i lost friends in combat. i was wounded in combat. i've got a son in combatant missing his baby girl growing up. the clintons, the obamas will never ever have that. they will never have anybody close to them in harm's way. they're going to have protection all the time. so that dangerous, complicated world they were chucke -ling about the other night doesn't ply to them. why the american people, why cnn, why the mainstream media is not asking the tough questions is surprising me.
4:19am
here's something you won't hear in the main media. here's how you defeat terrorism. take a hard stance on it. if you're not killed, you will be brought here, not given a lawyer, somebody like me, we'll water board you. i'm going to get the information and defeat you at your grass roots so you can't recruit because it is a lot less appealing to the people being recruited if they know they got somebody like me that's waiting for them when they get to america. otherwise, they're going to be recruited because you've got a president saying we need to retake our moral high ground. here's what i say: two to the body, one to the head. and then if you do survive, we're going to torture you -- i'm sorry -- and have to interrogate you until we get our answers. that's how you defeat terrorism. >>steve: well, put howard. let me ask you about this. in recent history, the only times an administration has left guys exposed, left guys behind were mogadishu and also in benghazi.
4:20am
so if you're a member of the military and you're stuck somewhere and you're waiting for help, what's the message? >> you know what the sad thing about that is? there's no doubt in my military mind that those seals on the ground in benghazi were expecting help to be coming. from day one of training, you're taught, you're trained in your brain that your country is going to support you. your country is going to do everything possible to help you if you're in a tight situation. so the fact that we didn't get what we needed in mogadishu and somalia was a lesson learned that wasn't incorporated into benghazi. that's how a lot of times you get better in your tactics and techniques. you have a screw-up. you admit it was messed up and then you go onant don't make the sake -- go on and don't make the same mistake. unfortunately our country has a short memory. if we appear soft we make ourselves a target.

[ laughter ]
4:34am
[ laughter ] >> steve: jay leno is forgetting that governor cuomo in new york might try and make a run for it, too, on the democratic side. there is probably a few others. clinton against cuomo again. mario against bill. >> steve: that's right. and the choice for the president, if he had to pick between jaden and hillary, who would he pick? the loyal vice president who he picked over hillary clinton? >> brian: who he's really good friends with. >> steve: or hillary clinton who you look at the polls in the democratic party and she's ahead by a mile. >> brian: 130% she's ahead. >> gretchen: yeah. >> steve: that's malarky. >> gretchen: let's see how that plays out. here are some of your headlines. yemeni seized a sail goat suspected of smuggling arms. it was intercepted, yemeni coast guard officers found a huge cache of weapons, including surface to air missiles, rocket propelled grenades and c-4 military grade explosives. a yemen official says this is
4:35am
the third incident in just two months. >> steve: a brand-new investigation revealing a probe on the company is building a windpower plant in the same place where a coal plant closed. duke energy building two major wind power projects down in texas. the daily caller says that is a little too close for comfort. >> duke energy, a company you'll remember that lent $10 million to the democratic party for its convention this summer in charlotte and whose ceo has expressed interest in becoming the obama administration's energy secretary. in other words, a company with close ties to the obama administration. >> steve: that's got to be a coincidence. chase power says it was forced to abandon plans fort coal plant because of the epa's tough coal regulations. the plan would have created 3900 jobs. >> brian: did you see this? snowmobile flips, the top of the rider -- ouch. even though the rider walked away from the crash initially, he was later rushed to the
4:36am
hospital in critical condition at this hour. did he not make it all the way around on a flip. the crash damaging his heart, damaging his brain. >> gretchen: here is one for the dumb criminal file. orlando man almost carjacked at gun point. the would be robbers ran away because they couldn't figure out how to drive the corvette stick shift. this would be me. >> my first thought was i guess we don't have driver's ed in school anymore because no one knows how it drive a stick. and my second thing was, well, don't shoot me because you can't start the car. [ laughter ] >> gretchen: even though they left his car, they got away with his cell phone and wallet. i tried to learn how it drive a stick shift i. tried with my then boyfriend in high school in a parking lot. he was an excellent teacher and i was a horrible student. i just could never -- thank god for -- >> steve: like an h. >> brian: in back we have them
4:37am
on the phone right now. >> gretchen: really? >> brian: let's find out what went wrong. >> gretchen: as i said, he was a great teacher and tried to teach me to parallel park. >> steve: you guys did a lot of stuff in that car. >> gretchen: i dated him for a long time! >> brian: did he bring you to inspiration point at all? >> gretchen: that's personal question. >> brian: okay. >> steve: 24 minutes -- >> gretchen: stuart varney passed out over here. >> steve: get your motor running. >> brian: he'd like to teach you how it drive a stick. >> steve: he's coming up in just a minute. snow expected to continue in boulder, colorado, this morning as temperatures plummet. drivers being warned to slow down and watch out for ice. now fort rest of your forecast, maria molina is in the weather center with a look at some crazy weather today. >> yeah, that's right. crazy weather across the country today. especially in the form of severe weather expected for a large section of the country, from texas into parts of arkansas, illinois, western portions of
4:38am
kentucky and into indiana. widespread. the reason why we're look at this severe weather is because we have very mild temperatures, very warm temperatures that will help fuel the severe storms. in the 70s now across texas. 67 in kansas city. look at chicago. it's still january and you have a current temperature this morning at 59-degrees already out there. we do have a strong cold front that will head eastbound and, unfortunately, we could be seeing some severe weather in the form of tornadoes. there is basically a moderate risk out for parts of arkansas, western portions of mississippi and also western parts of ten continue where we're expect to go see the greatest risk for severe weather today. not just tornadoes, but damaging wind gusts and also some large hail from some of the storms. there is already a tornado watch in effect across parts of oklahoma in effect until noon, oklahoma city, you're in that zone. guys. >> gretchen: thank you. remember those occupy wall street protesters? >> steve: you're thinking about that car. >> gretchen: i still am.
4:39am
anyway, the "new york post" decided to break down the numbers to show you exactly who these people were. you might be surprised at what they found out. >> brian: they're 92% were educated. 13% were unemployed. that's it! 28% earned over $50,000. what the heck were they sincerely protesting then? >> steve: more than two-thirds of them were actually employed professionals. these according to the city university of new york institute for worker education and labor studies. they're the ones that actually did it. joining us right now for his take on this, we thought they were the 99%. they're closer to the 1%. >> yes. that's a very interesting survey, yes. the 1%ers revolting against themselves. >> steve: crazy. >> that's the way it goes. >> steve: what are you talking about today? >> stick shift. you put the clutch in -- [ laughter ] and you let the clutch out slowly. lohstrohly. >> gretchen: okay, i tried! it didn't work! but i'm available after studio b, 4 p.m are you? >> yes, ma'am.
4:40am
>> gretchen: good. the president is going to push his plan for immigration reform later today and the white house says it's gonna help our economy. watch this. >> the president believes that action on immigration reform is done right, helpful to our economy, increases fairness to our middle class, insures everybody is playing by the same rules, makes a level playing field for our businesses because it holds them responsible in terms of how they deal with these issues. these are all would be healthy for our economy and job creation. >> gretchen: so the president said the same thing about obamacare, stu and many people say how did that turn out as far as job creation? >> there is something missing from the immigration reform debate and that is the cost, the money. i follow the money. i think the money should be part of the immigration reform debate. at the moment it is not. there is two areas here. number one, if we make 11 million people full citizens, then that costs our health care
4:41am
system a great deal of money. eventually there is significant cost. they will get medicare. they're not paid much into it. they get it. some of them, low income people will get medicaid and many people, many of these 11 million will go on to these government subsidized health insurance exchanges set up under obamacare. so point number one, this is going to cost us. that should be part of the debate. >> brian: carney is saying they become taxpayers for the first time instead of bilking our system. >> jay carney is making the point, the president's point that immigration reform is good overall for america's middle class, good overall for the economy. making the same claims that were made about obamacare. obamacare really did not work out as a plus for the economy. will this work out as a plus for the economy if and when immigration reform goes through? there is one area where it will be a plus for the economy and that is that the proposal for more high-tech immigrant visas.
4:42am
that's what many businesses need. that's what they want weather get under this immigration reform proposal. that is a plus. >> steve: in fact, in the "wall street journal" today on the op ed page, they are argue in favor of immigration reform provided there is, in addition to a guest worker program, some sort of way so that we can have a better inflow and outflow of workers as the economy needs it. >> whether this helps america's middle class, that's a debatable story because if you've got a lot of newly minted immigrants, fully legal who are relatively unskilled, that will crowd out the unskilled american born people who already do not have a job. >> gretchen: another question about cost. right now a lot of illegal immigrant goes to the emergency room. they do get health care. how will this affect that? >> there will be a saving in that area. a health cost saving. you're right, gretchen. currently many go to the emergency room. they cannot be refused treatment. it's very action opinionsive.
4:43am
if they are fully legitimate citizens of the united states of america, they can go to a regular doctor. they can go through the obamacare system. not the expensive. >> brian: oracle, microsoft, chamber of commerce all for some type of reform. >> they want the high-tech visa. >> brian: we watch you. >> we're talk stick shift. >> brian: all about the clutch. >> steve: straight ahead, are you one of the millions of americans looking for a job today? well, today could be your day because cheryl casone has got five companies hiring right now. get out a pencil and a piece of paper. >> gretchen: linda gray here. did you know the dallas star is running for governor you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole.

[ laughter ] >> steve: that's the show. >> so this was a really, and especially since he's passed, it's hard for me to look at that
4:49am
scene. >> steve: but j.r., larry himself would say the show's got to go on, even though he's in the dna of dallas. >> oh, yeah. it will always go on. we were with him, patrick and i spent two days before he passed, we were with him, just the three of us in a hospital room. and spent two hours reminiscing, laughing, giggling. we thought he was going to just come right back like he's always done. it's bittersweet. >> gretchen: in the show now, you will see larry hagman for the first couple of episodes for season 2. and then they're going to write off some sort of plot? >> we just finished filming when the actual burial. we did an actual burial, grave site, et cetera. and it's so beautifully and respectfully done. it's what he should have and he

5:06am
state address. he is expected to urge lawmakers to amend the state constitution so taxpayers would get back whatever money the government collects and doesn't spend. does that actually happen? texas' economy has been booming since perry pushed for across the board budget cuts two years ago. and those are your headlines. >> brian: a live look at the white house now. in less than two hours, it's wheels up for air force one. president obama leaving for las vegas. i believe there is a song like that. where he's expected to unveil his own more liberal push for immigration reform. >> steve: molly henneberg is already up. hi. >> good morning. yes, this will begin the president's public push for immigration changes and he'll go to nevada, a state where latinos make up more than a quarter of the state's population, and they voted more than two to one for the president last fall. it's also a state where illegal immigrants make up 7.2% of that state's population. the white house says the president will make the case to
5:07am
the public of the time is now to get these changes clue thou congress. the white house says the president will insist that any reform must end in a pathway to citizenship for illegals. but the spokesperson would not detail how that path to citizenship might or might not be linked to border security. >> the president believes that we need to move forward in a comprehensive way that includes a path to citizenship, that includes making sure that our businesses behave responsibly, that includes making sure that border security continues to be enhanced. >> bipartisan group in the senate laid out an immigration framework yesterday that the white house says looks very good to the president. and does include a path to citizenship, as well as increased border security. the top republican in the senate, though, is waiting for more details, both from that group and from the president. senator mitch mcconnell said in a statement, when the president addresses this issue tuesday, i hope he will take a bipartisan approach rather than
5:08am
delivering another divisive partisan speech. this effort is too important to be written in a back room and sent to the floor with a take it or leave it approach. it needs to be done on a bipartisan basis and include ideas from both sides of the aisle. there is already opposition to this plan, or the framework to the plan in the republican controlled house. texas congressman lamar smith says legalizing illegals, quote, costs taxpayers millions of dollars, costs american workers thousands of jobs, and encourages more illegal immigration. back to you in new york. >> steve: all right. molly, we thank you very much. across town from where she is sitting, we find laura ingraham. good morning to you. >> good to see you. >> steve: so what do you think? does the president really want immigration reform? >> well, yeah. i mean, he kind of has all of his heavy lifting already done for him, right? he wins election, he campaigns in part on this. and then the republicans rush
5:09am
in, the same people who pretty much always been for this path to citizenship, graham and mccain, they've been consistent on this, so the president can go to nevada and if he wants, kind of one up the bipartisan coalition and say, this is a good start, but i really want this process streamlined even more. and i think that answer from jay carney yesterday was pretty telling when he said, well, we want continued border security. continued enhancements of border security. what does that mean exactly? why do you have do it all at one step? i would say the reason for that, guys, is that then you can't really verify that the borders ever really been enforced. calima cynic, but i do not believe that borrowed enforcement is a really -- border enforcement is a serious part of this deal. i have think it's a throw in to make people feel better, but it's not going to amount to much. >> steve: jay carney said border security has never been better than under the obama administration, that they've had stricter controls than ever before. i think deportation numbers are
5:10am
actually way up. but also what i find interesting is that -- >> we have deportation and the dream act that was instituted by executive fiat. so you have basically a blanket amnesty of everybody under the age of, what was it, 28, 30? so yeah. that's true. they do have more deportations and they can point to those. but then again we have millions of people, 1.2 million people who essentially have been given a right to stay here as long as they want. >> gretchen: don't you find it interesting that senator marco rubio is also part of this group? not only for his own presidential prospects, but because he is an american latino who does want to have some sort of immigration reform? i think partially personally because he believes in it, but also for his party? >> yeah, i think -- i don't deny that these people are for this, believe in it. i think they actually think it's the right thing to do for political reasons and i think they think it's just the right thing to do, period. my question, which never really gets an answer, is how does this

actually help the middle class of the united states? how does this enhance -- >> brian: i have no idea. >> to me, when you look at what is being done with social services in the country, what's happened to california that has more illegal immigrants today than any other state, what has that done to the infrastructure, education, obamacare, all those stresses on an already overstressed system? i haven't heard how that actually makes life in america better for working people, legal immigrants, people still waiting for visas. >> brian: they'll be paying taxes then. >> yeah, well. as mr. there camerota has discussed in his study, the problem with that analysis is that there is a strong percentage of illegal immigrants who are low income earners. so they will be paying some taxes, but at the lower end of the economic spectrum, the cost of this -- again, tax paying
5:12am
american, middle class americans, will probably outweigh the benefits in terms of taxes collected, at least in the next ten years. >> steve: let's put your law degree and vast experience in the court system to use. the courts dealt the white house a terrible blow where they said hey, you made those appointments during the recess appointments for the national labor relations board. they have to take place during a recess, mr. president. do you think he's going to or just ignore it?urt is saying >> well, look, a couple of professors have spoken out on this, law professors. they say, well, the president might be able to use the staff that works currently for the nlrb and for the consumer protection board and use those staff members to then pummel these businesses that are being subject to scrutiny for not paying attention to the union. pummel them with questions and basically intimidate them. can that happen?

5:14am
i think it was weird. i don't think it helped hillary at all and i think everybody saw right through it and steve croft comes over and says, well, what do you expect? we're not going to really ask them tough questions. okay. then why show up at all for the interview? >> brian: give us 30 minutes of our life back. >> exactly. at the end of that, if you listen closely at the "60 minutes" interview, at the end it says, i'm hillary clinton and i approve this. [ laughter ] >> gretchen: or said i'm barak obama and i just endorsed hillary clinton. >> joe biden meanwhile is in american samoa. >> gretchen: i don't know if we have time for the diet coke guy. maybe we can show his abs. he's going to come up in the tease, so pay attention. we'll cut back to your reaction. >> fantastic. that's doocy in the ad, right? dark hair. >> steve: actually it's my part-time. >> brian: we're having a problem with the tape. so chris chulo will take his shirt off (we'll see you next week.

5:26am
i guess we get the point, david, of what your book is about. is that how you sum it up? >> that is really one way of putting it. it's incredible with croft in particular with the footage they sat on at cbs news for so long after the controversy with candy crowley about benghazi. to see him talk about any specifically mentioned, because we edit things well. that's one reason obama likes to come badge it's amazing. >> steve: it looks like cbs has a dog in that race. then you look at john dickerson, political director last week giving advice that the president should anilate the republican party going forward. it's interesting, in your book issues you talk about how during the campaign, the media absolutely ignored the biggest story. >> well, many big stories. >> steve: because they weren't helpful to the president. >> exactly. journalists, my old boss, bob
5:27am
novak, used to say a reporter is someone who would sell his soul for a story. it's when the story would make barak obama look bad or his presidency look like a failure, there is a total lack of journalistic curiousity, unwillingness to sell one's soul for a story. really big stories like benghazi became nonstories. editorial judgments were made to play these things down, to just set them aside, or you had a lot of the coverage of the job market that just didn't rise to the challenge of demonstrating how bad things were for people. we always hear about job when is there is a republican president. with obama, you have that going on super sized and instead of covering the fact that part-time work is replacing full time work, wages have have been going down not since the crisis, which with wasn't obama's fault burks since the recovery started, which is his recovery. >> steve: yeah. instead we got big bird and 47%. who cares? >> the war on women and
5:28am
imaginary contraception ban that no one was advocating and nobody ever supported. but by bringing it up, george stephanopoulos made it a story. >> gretchen: the interesting thing is a pugh study said between october -- august and october showed how important the media coverage actual actually is. it showed when there were more positive stories about mitt romney, there was, actually, daughter particular time before the first debate, that his numbers went up in the polls. so it showed the influence that the media can actually have on the people. >> yes. and that debate performance in particular forced some positive stories about romney. but it's also interesting that you look at the period before they were forced to write something nice about him and because he had earned it essentially, you found that the coverage was about twice as positive for obama and about 63% more negative about romney than about obama. >> steve: i read a column you wrote fort new york post where

5:49am
who embrace me. i need to embrace msnbc because they know how to do compromise and because they will take my talking points in the morning and throughout the day. i need to embrace those people who believe in my ideology. i need to embrace everything that rejects the first amendment. i need to embrace a philosophy that says if you object or question or seek debate, that that's bad. then you are an enemy of the state. this is a tough, tough situation. the president trashed republicans big time. they don't know how to compromise. they don't know how to seek out their inner selves and reach out in a truthful way to the american people, that one left leading outfit does. fox doesn't. so rush limbaugh and fox become the targets for a progressive america. and at the same time, the president will get up and give a speech and say, i'm for the first amendment.
